We report a numerical analysis performed to determine the range of parameters necessary for observing stable phase-locked solutions in the case of three next-neighbor coupled lasers. The locking band is determined not only by the coupling strength and by the different array elements’ field amplitude ratios but also by the field phase retardation in the coupling channels.
